At Masabi, we are helping to make cities better places to live, work and visit, by enabling seamless, frictionless journeys on public transport systems. We are a technology company, developing a SaaS-based fare collection and ticketing platform that allows commuters to buy and present tickets for public transport on their mobile phones or simply by tapping a bank card to travel. At Masabi’s core, therefore, we are a mobile/digital payments platform tightly integrated into public transit systems - replacing existing legacy infrastructure with a cloud-based, full fare collection platform.
Proving ourselves as true innovators and category leaders, we launched a ticketing SDK - a first for public transit - allowing urban mobility providers like ride-hailing (Uber), journey planners (Transit), and bike and ride-sharing services, to integrate our market-leading ticketing platform into their applications, connecting services together for a seamless user experience. Current customers of Masabi’s SDK include Uber, Transit (NA), Jorudan (Japan) and Kisio/Keolis (France).
Ticketing systems like Masabi’s Justride platform used to take years to deliver and cost tens or hundreds of millions to deploy and operate. This is no longer the case as Justride is available on a revenue share model, meaning agencies only pay for what they use when they use it. It is a success-based pricing model for transit agencies - consumer funded, based on usage.
Justride is deployed in cities around the globe, including New York, London, Boston, Las Vegas, The Hague, Los Angeles and many more, with an exciting industry-first SDK deployment partnering with Uber in Denver which enables the purchase of public transport tickets right within the Uber application.
Having recently closed a funding round raising $20m, the business is planning its next stage of growth. We aim to add to the feature set of the platform, expanding our addressable market significantly, as well as continuing the successful push into new territories such as Asia, Western Europe and Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe.
We are 115 people headquartered in London with offices in New York, Boston and Cluj.
LOVE WHAT YOU DO
We think that it’s crucial everyone in the Masabi family should believe in the mantra #LoveWhatYouDo.
All this was possible by creating a culture of collaboration, innovation and communication. The products are only as good as the people that build them and at Masabi we hire the best people from the payment, transport and software industry.
We hold daily team meetings and company 'All Hands' every fortnight ensuring we are all pulling in the same direction.
We facilitate and encourage collaboration between all of our teams and our offices around the world.
We encourage everyone to think outside the box helping us to continually innovate our products.
Since our inception in 2002, Masabi has tried to create a workplace that is equal for all employees as we believe that our best chance of success is through a happy and diverse workforce. From removing bias in pay reviews all the way to our gender-neutral bathrooms, we feel that Masabi is a welcoming home for people from all walks of life and we hope to continue this trend into the future as we expand our efforts by working with communities like myGwork.
